    Peak Of The Season -

    Just hitting the peak of our tomato season. Yes, I know we are way behind.  This year my wife started some heirloom tomatoes in her green house.  They are Brandywines.  Had all these big tomatoes, but showed no sign of getting ripe.  Then two weeks ago, finally got two.  4...

    Oh Summer Fruit!

    I am DREAMING right now of a day that can't get here soon enough! I love to walk out in my yard on a sunny warm summer morning. Nude and barefoot walking through the cool dew covered grass, towards my garden. The red ripe fruit hangs heavy on the plant and springs back as I...

    I Have Yet to Meet a Tomato That I Dont Like

    Fried green, fresh off the vine, canned, in soups..... i like tomatoes, they are tasty. What else can i say about them? When I was growing up, my dad would plant cherry tomatoes and big tomatoes in the back yard. They rarely ever made it into the house.

    Deeleezious.

    Its weird, I totally forced myself to like tomatoes. I hated them for many years, even on sandwiches. I heard something about how taste buds learn to like what they like, and that they can be made to enjoy pretty much any flavor if exposed to it enough. So I made an experiment...

    I Ate All The Tomatoes

    My dad had a garden at the end of the driveway. He had tomatoes, squash, peppers, sometimes cantaloupes, and watermelons- and sunflowers one year! I'd grab a cup from the kitchen, hop on my bike, and ride to the garden to fill up my cup with cherry tomatoes. Then, I'd ride...

    Especially With Other Food

    It's actually weird because I used to hate tomatoes when I was really little, because they were sloppy and would drip everywhere. Well, when I grew up a bit I started liking a lot of foods that I didn't like before, so I also liked tomatoes more. Tomatoes are AMAZING! I love the...

    My Grandma's Tomatoes!

    Savoury

    I like pretty much anything made from tomatoes.  My grandmother used to grow them in her garden.  A tomato straight off the vine and warm from the sun...nothing quite like it.

    Home Grown Tomatoes

    from John Denver. "There is nothing like true love and home grown tomatoes".  Up here in Oregon, tomatoes come later.  We are just getting into the season.  And there is nothing like home grown tomatoes.

    Very healthy. They include antioxidants.

    They are also tasty. Mmm caprese : tomatos, mozzarella en pesto ( I didn't add basil on purpose cos I don't think it's necessary for the taste).

    As a Child,

    I use to absolutely despise Tomatoes. Now I enjoy them immensely Fresh tomatoes can go with just about any meal, but I'd have to say the sun-dried variety are my favorite. Fun fact: The US Supreme Court ruled in Nix v. Hedden (1893) that the tomato is classified as a vegetable...
